Don't rush me, please.

Because I'm not done with my wintery season. Mother Nature needs lots of time and frigid weather to make the world this beautiful so we can't rush her. It was cold out here, you can be sure of that, but it didn't stop us. It never does. And the sun was shining brightly all weekend long.

Lunch, on the beach, in the sunshine. Perfect!

Beautiful isn't it? Wanna go with us next time?


  1. these images are AMAZING! where did you go - and yes, please take me with you. have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Wow, these photos really are amazing! I just came in from playing in the snow and it is really beautiful...but nothing compared to these photos! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Is that the Mighty Mackinac bridge? I miss my hometown of Mackinaw City.

  4. Anne - yes, that is the Mighty Mac. We had been in Sault St. Marie, CA and came home via the bridge. That was my first time seeing it nearly frozen over so we stopped for pics. It was sort of creepy to be walking on the ice when and hear the pressure cracks run.

  5. omg god. beautiful. yes and yes, please!

  6. what a beautiful place you live in!! your photos are just stunning!

    i too am not ready for winter to end...take your time mother nature, i'm still enjoying my sweaters and and cozy, cold days and nights...:) we've had an unusually colder winter this year for us austinites, and while most are complaining about it i am absolutely in love with this season. it will make spring even that much more exciting!
